Everybody Loves Sade

Sade Adu's been on my mind lately. I often wonder what my favorite artists are up to - you know, the ones who aren't highly visible in the age of social media. Honestly, I'm thankful for her reclusiveness, although she was once quoted as saying, "I'm not shy or reclusive. I just spend my time with people rather than journalists."  Sade is one of the most significant names in music, and one of the biggest entertainers on the planet, yet, we hardly know anything about h…

Year-End Thoughts & New Year Intentions

I feel like I've hit a plateau. Honestly, I've been feeling this way for some time. Overall, life's not bad, but I do not feel as though I've progressed much in certain areas of my life. This is not to say that I haven't constantly been working towards personal and professional growth, but let's just say I haven't felt a noticeable shift as of late. I don't enjoy being in this head space because sometimes, the mental chatter is so loud, and sometimes, she's …

Sunday's Coffee Table Vibes

I love skimming the pages of the various coffee table books in my collection, and over the past few months, developed this habit of snapping photos of some of my favorite images within those books. One of the things I find peace and comfort in is taking photos. It gets me out of my head. I especially love doing it on Sundays for some reason, I think because this is my only full day off work, and Sunday just gives me that restorative, peaceful feeling. I love being able to get my errands, if an…

Favorite Excerpts From Tracee Ellis Ross's InStyle Interview

On being single: "It's sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless. Happily single, I should add.  Not at home crying about it. These are very big and very personal questions that aren't anyone's business but that somehow, like the right to choose, become fodder for public conversation.  Some of the ability to reflect on what I really want comes from pushing up against a society that shames me for not having the expected trappings. I'm very pleased with my existe…

Note to Self: Do You

I was chatting with one of my best friends about jobs, passions, etc., and she insisted that I start a blog because I'm "really talented at a lot of things." I replied, "I already have one." "For real?? How come you didn't tell me?" Here's the thing - I don't really have a good answer for that question, other than the fact that I never like putting a bullhorn up to my mouth and broadcasting my "things." Blogs, hobbies, etc. I don't hi…

A Warrior: Rest in Peace, Kyrzayda (1978-2018)

This land of social media is such a fascinating place. You have the ability to interact with thousands, even millions of strangers from all over the world just by the tap of your phone or computer, most of whom you'll never meet in person. Then, these rare instances occur when you come across someone who inspires you so much, it feels as if you've known them forever.  I discovered  Kyrzayda  a little over a year ago, and fell in love with her style , which, let's be real, was complete…
